landrace marijuana seeds

In the Rif mountains of northern Morrocco, Ketama is best known around the world as Morocco’s Hash Capital. The cannabis plants from Ketama are adapted to growing in the local arid conditions with barren, rocky soil and are naturally ideal hashish production plants. Ketama by World of Seeds is a high yield, pure indica variety chosen from a huge collection of seeds WOS brought back from the Rif and reproduced. The large, fast-flowering, resinous buds are ready as early as September outdoors and give strong odors of the best Moroccan Hash. High resistance to pests, diseases, and medium resistance to mold.

We started in high school with Mexican weed that had a high concentration, also, of seeds. Then came “sinsemilla” from Mexico which was easier to roll and of better quality, coming in from San Diego in kilos. We were then treated to indoor growers in 1971, one growing an African strain that had black, sticky buds that oozed when squeezed (never got to smoke it tho) and one who took the Santa Marta Gold seeds and produced a variety of outdoor and indoor buds, some being called laughing weed as we could not stop laughing when smoking and others that just tasted so nice that those Colombian seeds were the rage. One friend of a friend was arrested in S.F. for trafficking coke and called us, instead of his lawyer, cuz his experimental cross breeding in Oregon of all the Humboldt county seeds he collected, some with Hawaiian strains in the mix, were more important to him to keep from the DEA. We were treated to all those cross breeds as he put a bud and respective seeds in baggies with notes about their origins. We rolled joints and tasted the changes in strains as we smoked down the reefers. All the while, thai weed in stick form came with Panama Red and Alcupulco Gold. And then the bear cage hash was found by a hunter, or two, as the story goes, smuggled in square tubed bear caged, three i believe, and one broke open, losing both bear(s) and cargo. The hash was almost black with opium white streaks in the compressed fingers.

One of the most beautiful indicas that Cannabiogen has ever grown, Pakistan Chitral Kush is a pure indica strain originally sourced from the Chitral District northern Pakistan, famous for its hash. The genetics have been inbred in the Iberian Peninsula since the mid-nineties and since reproduced by Cannabiogen seeds. The colorful red, purple, and green plants show a surprising resistance to fungus and rain issues. Grows into medium-sized plants. Pakistan Chitral Kush is a prime breeder’s tool that has been used as a parent to develop many great fast-flowering hybrids. Its resin-soaked fruity buds give a chill body stone.

Born 1954 & raised in Vancouver BC, Started puffin Weed in 1966′ age 12, My Buddies Older Brother went down to 4th. ave in Kitsilano and scored off the hippies….back then it was all Compressed Kilos of seed weed Mexican,
Seemed like they just tossed in handfuls of seeds in the bricks, we even found Peyote buttons in them….Then Some sensimilla made its way up Gorraro, Yucatan Panama even Acapulco, then different kinds of Columbian Gold Chocolate. There was actually homegrown weed being sold here in the early ’70s it was pounds and pounds of leaf with no bud in it…This gave homegrown a bad name that took many years to break out from. The Jamaican came in so hard-pressed we would heat it up with microwave to get it apart, bout that time the odd bit of super Californian bud was sneaking its way up …and some Maui Wowie made its way across the Pacific from Hawaii into Van. Then the untied Thai was coming in massive loads on mother ships …there was one load that was in vac-packed kilos with paper tags in them with an Eagle on it and it was the kill …lol…Outdoor finally cleaned up its act got organized and up to the times and started pumping out seedless bud …then around 1984//85 people slowly started growing indoor weed here, and It’s popularity took off like wildfire. In the beginning, LB.’s were going for 36 hun. The last big load of untied Thai came in about that time and didn’t do to well the indoor was all the rage. As the years passed if was all indoor and outdoor which kinda peaked at around 23 and then the teens …when 9-11 happened in 2001 the boarders tightened up and we came to a grinding halt on the exports south which caused a huge glut and prices fell dramatically ….In the past couple years to now, the outdoor hit an all-time low around 500/lb and the indoor anywhere from 900 to mid-range kushes etc around 12-14 hun and the high ends /Trip.s up to 17 & 18 hun/lb….
…Then there is the “”Turn Hashish into Ashe’s”” Saga … But I’ll save something for tomorrow … East Van Guy.

Today’s cannabis has been mixed to the extent that many have lost their original mystic and power, giving way to the unnatural demands of today’s grower. These modern day strains get nowhere near the purity and clarity of their ancestral families as all of the original “power phenos” are lost within the process of cross breeding.

Our intention is to preserve, reproduce and distribute the finest examples from around the world, from sativas to indicas. We want to pass on these pure “foundation strains” so as to not lose them forever in a world dominated by hybridized and feminized cannabis varieties.

Furthermore these new strains require a lot of nutrients that are derived from the carbon fossil world adding on to the depleting of Mother Nature. Our mission is to bring all these amazing strains back to the forefront of the cannabis community! Saving the future of cannabis by preserving its past.

These pure strains will bring amazing memories to smokers from the 60s/70s, since at that time this was the type of marijuana normally available on the market.

Pure cannabis strains (also called landraces or purebreds) have developed in its natural environment and has never been crossed with any other strain but inbred through many, many generations. These varieties are very stable and present very few variations – if any from one plant to another.

Most landrace genetics are then 100% Sativa or 100% Indica, although there are some exceptions. Normally, pure or landrace cannabis strains often include their country or region of origin in their name. Examples: Hindu Kush (Indica), Acapulco Gold (Sativa), Panama 74 (Sativa), etc.

Landrace cannabis strains

Pure strains have the advantage of offering very original flavors and effects, pretty different of those from today’s hybrids, which often contain the same genetic basis (Skunk, Haze, etc.).

Here you’ll find a list with all the pure marijuana strains from our catalog. We also include in this category those varieties created from crosses between two and three pure genetics.
